Support schemes in NCL for the Cost of Living crisis

The Cost of Living crisis is putting increased pressure on households across the United Kingdom. There is a rise in everyday costs such as energy bills, food, interest rates; having a direct impact on residents and businesses. A number of citizens are having to make extremely difficult choices, especially over the winter months in terms of cutting back on essentials and budgeting where necessary.

There are number of services and support schemes available across the North Central London (NCL) geographical area to support those in need. As such, each NCL council has a dedicated page in relation to the Cost of Living crisis, providing an overview of the provisions available.
